Funbi releases his debut project, a full length EP aptly titled “Serenade”.
Singing of the women in his life, Funbi weaves in and out of love and meaningful experiences with each song–from sensual, to genuine, adventurous to deeply touching.
“It’s almost like the story of my life, with each memory defined by the women who have made an impact,” Funbi said. “They’re intelligent, they’re beautiful, they’re complex. The project is about how they have affected my life in real and lasting ways. I think many people, especially guys, can resonate with that.”
From funk to Afrobeat, folk and alternative–the smooth singer’s dynamic range is prominently on display throughout the sultry seven track offering; highlighting his romance with soul, and most notably–indicating a return to tasteful, sensual R&B.
Funbi is, at his best, a versatile singer and storyteller whose essence captures the new Nigerian sound: drawing from the past, highlighting the present, and pushing the boundaries for the future of unconfined African music.
